    Eden Hazard hints that Chelsea future rests on summer signings


    Summer recruitment

    Chelsea star Eden Hazard has hinted that the clubs summer recruitment will determine whether he signs a new deal at the club or not.

    The Belgian has been linked with a move to Real Madrid for several transfer windows now but a move has yet to materialise.

    Though, should Gareth Bale leave the club this summer, it could well see Real Madrid finally make their move for the player.

    Chelsea will try to stop them however, by offering the player a new £300,000-a-week contract.

    Though, when asked about signing a new deal, the player seemed to suggest that he was waiting to see what happens this summer.

    He has suggested that the club need to sign big because he wants to win the Premier League next season.

    He also revealed that he will take his time over signing a new deal because he has to think about ‘a lot of things’.

    “I’m waiting for new players next season. We’ll see,” he is quoted as saying by the Daily Mirror. 

    “I want good players, because I want to win the Premier League next season.

    “Yeah, [I have to think about] a lot of things, and then we will see. That’s why I’m taking my time. It’s something big.

    “I need two more trophies: Champions League and FA Cup. I think, to play Champions League next season is important. To win trophies also.

    “Trophies are important. FA Cup, League Cup, Premier League, Champions League. You know?

    “And it’s more important for me, because I’ve never won this one. That’s why I want to win.”
